Whether you've been thriving under stay-at-home orders by keeping up a fitness regime, baking more loaves of bread than you know what to do with, or capitalizing on daily walks to reduce the existential angst, we've somehow found ourselves halfway through 2020. Under the current circumstances, it can be a true challenge to maintain any semblance of a healthy lifestyle. But with Summer right around the corner, there is no better time than the present to add exercise to our routines, whether or not we continue social distancing.
With that in mind, we've looked into our collection of products to find our favorite items for enhancing any type of workout routine. CBD is a natural alternative to the slew of pre-workout, protein powders, and post-workout supplements that line the shelves of health stores and supposedly enhance your exercise routines by supporting muscle recovery, improving energy levels, and other claims. If you've tried any of the aforementioned product types, you may have found that they work with varying levels of effectiveness and some even have undesired side effects -- itchiness from pre-workout powder anyone?
If your philosophy is a “less is more” or “less is good enough for me” when it comes to working out, you’re not alone! There is nothing wrong with a minimalist workout routine, and activity is better than no activity.
Are you the type of person that prefers lighter, longer aerobic routines over a strenuous session that pushes your muscle groups to the limits? Do you prefer staying indoors to feeling the sun beat down as you work out? Maybe your routine consists of yoga, dance, pilates, and the occasional cardio class. On a good week, you manage to get a few sessions in. On a typical week, you’re more than happy to settle for doing yoga once or twice.
If that sounds like you, we have a great way to enhance your current lifestyle and even give you something to look forward to after each workout. Our CBD Body Lotion is lavender scented and is not only a great moisturizer, but an effective way to soothe your muscles. Rinse off after a relaxing yoga class or a sweat inducing dance class, and use a quarter-sized amount to massage generously all over your skin. Give it up to an hour to fully set in and enjoy the benefits for 4-6 hours. With a calming lavender scent, our CBD Body Lotion is designed to help with post-workout recovery and any pain or inflammation.
There is no better way to wrap up a workout than properly winding down your muscles. As you relax and feel the lotion work its magic, you may even find yourself looking forward to the next work out session, when you can pamper yourself once more!
If you prefer a less floral scent, our original, apple-scented CBD Body Lotion is another option that remains one of our most popular products.
Cardio. Sunlight. Nature. Hiking Trails. Beaches. The wind in your face. So suffice it to say, you’re not really a gym person. Your idea of a healthy, fit lifestyle involves the great outdoors and mother nature. There is no better feeling than the sun above your head, pavement and gravel beneath your feet. You’re a traditionalist when it comes to working out, and you enjoy the time you get to spend outside while you exercise.
Is your idea of working out a nice 4 to 5-mile run around the neighborhood? Maybe you’re not big on running, or perhaps you’re avoidant when it comes to heavy cardio, but you love a nice hike with beautiful scenery. Even if you’re more intense and prefer biking, skating, surfing, tennis, or some other sport, it cannot be denied that you much prefer being outdoors than lifting weights and pumping iron in a gym somewhere.
Regardless of whether you work out once in a while or several times a week, it is also very important to pay attention to our sun exposure. For the traditional, outdoor enthusiast who prefers to keep their active life out in the open, we have a product specifically designed to soothe your skin after being out in the sun all day. Our CBD Aloe Vera is after-sun care ointment that helps the body hydrate and retain moisture, which in turn, promotes cellular regeneration.
Apply generously after a workout in the sun and allow the natural ingredients to nourish, clarify, and revitalize the skin. Make sure that your skin is clean before application. As a note, this product should not be used in place of, or as a replacement, for sunscreen or other preventative care products.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the gym or crossfit or calisthenics, you are completely devoted to keeping your body in tip top shape. Fitness is a lifestyle for you. You eat right, you exercise hard, and you push yourself to beat your personal records. If you skip a workout, you feel a little off. You love the burn, you crave the burn that only a strenuous workout can bring. Even with the pandemic, nothing is stopping you from maintaining your routine.
If you’re dedicated to fitness and/or body building, everything you do can impact how your body reacts, from the food you eat, the frequency of your meals, the consistency of your workouts, and the way you treat your body after a workout. The importance of post-workout recovery is not a new concept. Our muscles need time to recoup after being pushed hard, in order to avoid injuries and achieve the results that you want.
We’ve seen a number of post-workout rituals that some dedicated fitness enthusiasts swear by, ranging from ice baths to 2 hour roll-out routines. If you find yourself switching off between hardcore workouts and recovery days, we have something to add to the mix to enhance your current ritual. Our CBD Relief Wraps are designed to relieve discomfort and is a great addition to any post-workout recovery practice.
Each wrap takes on the nearly limitless amount of benefits Full Plant Extract CBD has to offer and to provide “comfort on-demand”. Each wrap contains 50MG of our Full Spectrum CBD and can be used to alleviate pain, inflammation, muscle aches, and soreness, in addition to providing relaxation. Before using the wrap, it’s important that the area is cleaned and thoroughly dried prior to application. Apply the wrap for a minimum of 30 minutes and enjoy the effects for 4-6 hours after.
Whether you’re a minimalist that does yoga or dance once or twice a week, an active traditionalist that finds yourself under the sun getting your heart rate up, or an all around enthusiast that thrives on the pump, CBD products can be used to enhance your workouts and workout recovery. Even if none of the above apply to you, and you’re a generalist, there are still ways to add CBD to your lifestyle.
For general use, we have saved the best for last. Our Muscle Recovery Cream is the ultimate item for those who are active, regardless of how they stay active. One of our most popular items, our clients rave about the healing benefits and the relief that the cream generates. Designed to be the optimal recovery formula, this cream will help with muscle aches, pain, inflammation, soreness, and general recovery. Additionally, many of our clients enjoy the cooling sensation that it brings, as well as the relaxation that comes with it. What’s unique about this cream is the added benefit of reducing performance anxiety and providing a sense of calm.
Use this product as needed and apply to the desired achy points on your body. Make sure to wash your hands with cool water after application.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a goal and priority for many people. It can be difficult to keep up with, but there are various products that can help enhance your current routine. With so many products available and out on the market, it can be overwhelming to research each product and test them out to find the ones that work for you. As CBD becomes more mainstream, it works as a natural alternative to the countless products e.g. pre-workout, supplements, protein powders, post-workout, etc. that are currently out on the market.
More often than not, the products on the shelves of health food stores can range in effectiveness or may not work at all. Worse, those products have ingredients that have undesired side effects such as itchiness and irritation! If you’re looking to add to your routine, CBD is a great alternative to explore. Envy CBD has a large selection of products that can be easily incorporated into any lifestyle, from the minimalist to the hard core enthusiast. All our products come with a Certificate of Analysis and offer a full breakdown of what ingredients go into each one.
